When we want wisdom for life, where do we begin?
Is wisdom found in the library, in history, in modern philosophers of ages past, in university, in internet searches, or in unique lived experience? Unlimited access to information pours in daily from every corner of the world with a multitude of unfiltered opinions. But for all the information we gather, are we truly wise?
In this three-week study in 1 Kings 3, Psalms, and Proverbs, follow King David and his son King Solomon, as they pen words of wisdom that pray and sing of its ultimate Source. Together they declare: God the Creator of all is the source of all wisdom.
Hear Solomon’s prayer, inspired by his father David’s passion for God. Solomon asks the Lord for wisdom with a wholly dependent heart, and God replies with abundant grace.
Sing praises with selected psalms of David, whose hymns of faith lead God’s people wisely across time. David models how to cultivate wisdom in every circumstance by living in worship of the Lord.
Pray through the words of Solomon’s book of Proverbs, where God’s inspired instruction, warnings and even humor have the power to inform and transform the believer’s walk in this world.
King David and his son King Solomon demonstrate: the foundation of all wisdom is loving reverence for God – Wisdom is His glorious Person revealed in the Word. Personal, transforming, and everlasting wisdom comes from God who graciously makes Himself known and gives His people wisdom. Will you know, love and worship God through faith in Jesus and treasure His Word today?
Will you go to God for the Wisdom only He provides?
